No. Request for Exception Attached If no text or a below college level text is used in a degree applicable course, a Request for Exception form must be completed and a rationale provided. This request for exception will be approved or denied by the Curriculum Committee. METHODS TO MEASURE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT: Please check where appropriate; however, a degree applicable course must have a minimum of one response in category 1, 2, or 3. If category 1 is not checked, the department must explain why substantial writing assignments are an inappropriate basis for at least part of the grade. 1. Substantial writing assignments, including: essay exam(s) term or other paper(s) laboratory report(s) written homework reading report(s) other (specify) _____ If the course is degree applicable, substantial writing assignments in this course are inappropriate because: The course is primarily computational in nature. The course primarily involves skill demonstrations or problem solving. Other rationale (explain) __________________________________________ 2. Computational or Non-computational problem-solving demonstrations, including: exam(s) quizzes homework problems laboratory report(s) field work other (specify)_______ 3. Skill demonstrations, including: class performance(s) other (specify)____ 4. Objective examinations, including: multiple choice completion field work performance exam(s) true/false other (specify) matching items 5.

REQUIRED READING, WRITING, AND OTHER OUTSIDE OF CLASS ASSIGNMENTS: Over an 18-week presentation of the course, 3 hours per week are required for each unit of credit. ALL Degree Applicable Credit classes must treat subject matter with a scope and intensity which require the student to study outside of class. Two hours of independent work done out of class are required for each hour of lecture. Lab and activity classes must also require some outside of class work. Outside of the regular class time the students in this class will be doing the following: Study Answer questions Skill practice Required reading Problem solving Written work (essays/compositions/report/analysis/research) Journal (reaction and evaluation of class, done on a continuing basis throughout the semester) Observation of or participation in an activity related to course content (e.g., play, museum, concert, debate, meeting, etc.) Field trips Other (specify) ____________________________ COLLEGE LEVEL CRITICAL THINKING TASKS/ASSIGNMENTS: Degree applicable courses must include critical thinking tasks/assignments. This section need not be completed for non-degree applicable courses. Describe how the course requires students to independently analyze synthesize, explain, assess, anticipate and/or define problems, formulate and assess solutions, apply principles to new situations, etc. This course requires the student to analyze the history of world aquaculture and synthesize that knowledge into the present and future. The student will be required to assess the role of aquaculture in the world food supply as well as its social and political ramifications in a region basis as well as a global perspective. The student will be required to define problems in culture techniques and how, they might be improved in order to increase vital production. Written assignments will reflect research into the subject topics outlined. METHOD OF EVALUATION: 1. Written Assignments 2. Quizzes 3.
